Appeal for Felix aid for Nicaragua

18Sep07

The Wales Nicaragua Solidarity Campaign’s sister organisation, NSC, has launched an appeal which the Welsh campaign is supporting (click here to read updates and to make a donation). Felix has left over 100 dead in and around Bilwi (Puerto Cabezas), with 180,000 left homeless, a large percentage of the population in Nicaragua’s North Caribbean region.

Today the Nicaraguan government announced they are to spend $28 million from their budget on immediate humanitarian relief. This follows an appeal by the United Nations on Saturday for $40 million. In contrast to many recent disasters, the response of the international community has been slow.
